Best Hotels in Memphis
Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel
Heartbreaking lodgings fit for The King.
What once might have been deemed as tacky now simply looks like a forerunner to the W and other hip hotels that have recently come into vogue. The lounge sets the tone---a fun cacophony of purple velvet divans and carpets trimmed in animal prints. Beware of weekends when the hotel is usually filled up. If you're in town to visit Graceland (why else would you be staying here?), take advantage of the hotel's reasonable Graceland Package. Standard guest rooms have kitchenettes and are otherwise fairly simple. But they have been jazzed up with diamond-checkered bed prints and, of course, photos of Elvis. For the signature experience, book into one of the four themed suites, all of which have been designed to give you the experience of living in Graceland. The eponymous suite was inspired by the mansion's many rooms, including the famed Jungle Room den. The Hollywood Suite, Burning Love Suite and Gold and Platinum Suite all offer their own over-the-top styles. The seasonal outdoor swimming pool is heart-shaped.
